Unaoil and the Panama Papers: A tale of a Bribe Factory and shady offshore money

The Huffington Post Bribe Factory

After a six-month investigation across two continents, Fairfax Media and The Huffington Post can reveal that billions of dollars of government contracts were awarded as the direct result of bribes paid on behalf of firms including British icon Rolls-Royce, US giant Halliburton, Australia’s Leighton Holdings and Korean heavyweights Samsung and Hyundai.

The investigation centres on a Monaco company called Unaoil, run by the jet-setting Ahsani clan. Following a coded ad in a French newspaper, a series of clandestine meetings and midnight phone calls led to our reporters obtaining hundreds of thousands of the Ahsanis’ leaked emails and documents.

And leaders, politicians, sports stars, conmen, criminals hiding their illegally gained money offshore via the Mossack Fonseca law firm. All visible through a huge trove of information taken from a hacked email server.
